What has colourful feathers, is beautiful and eye-catching?
Blue peacocks are! Blue peacocks are pretty birds that have
the ability to fly. Unlike adults they are actually not born with
feathers, but they develop them as they grow up.
Did you know that male are called peacocks and female are
called peahen. Also their babies are called pea chicks.


Blue peacocks live in India where it is nice and warm.
Once they have a place to live, they don’t wander around very
far from their home. The peacock generally likes to be near
dense wooded areas.Where there is many trees like: maple,
pine, oak, cedar and many more. Blue peacocks are known
to roost on the trees and feed on the ground.


Did you know that peacocks are omnivores?
Well yes they are. Peacocks feed on insects, fruit,grains,
seeds, flower petals, seed heads, arthropods, reptiles,
amphibians, bread and other scraps. They also snap flies
or pursue butterflies. Peacocks find food using their great
eyesight and hearing, to find living things they eat.To eat
plant-like food they just pluck it out with their strong beaks.


Peacocks are really, large colourful pheasants.
They grow an average of 5 feet long including their tail and
they weigh often over 4.5 to 6 kgs. The peacocks head has
crested  people even say that it looks like a crown.
The male’s crown is a metallic blue colour where the feathers
are curled. Their bill is about 2.5cm long and the color of it is
a pale white. Did you know that peacocks tail feathers are
more graceful and longer while peahens have short and curled
tail feathers. There is also a peacock that is fully white including
their feathers they don’t have any colour.


Peacocks are really majestic creatures; people even keep
them as pets! Did you no that a family of a peacock is called
a bevy. They are astonishing creatures. Do you want to have
a peacock. I do!

The Movies

The Movies


Yay! Today was the day, I was going to go to the cinemas that day. I was going to watch Despicable Me 3, with my Dad and my brother. I went to this movie in the school holidays since it was the latest kids movie

I was very excited, just like a person that was about to get a birthday present  would be. When I stepped into the cinemas, the popcorn greeted me to come in more. After we entered the movies   everything suddenly wen dark , but definitely not spooky. As we went up the elevator. I became  extremely overjoyed, We entered the darkness of joy. But then suddenly when we sat down we had to wait, and wait, and wait, and wait very patiently. Then finally the movie started. Yay! I shouted in my mind io

The movie was very hilarious and had a lot of quirky bits as well. “ Maybe that is why the movie was so popular “ I said to myself. I thought that the movie was great but I also thought the movie could have been a little bit longer. That is what  thought but I still enjoyed it. Also in the middle of the movie a lot of people were talking. This was distracting and annoying. Oh and also buttery puffy popcorn was everywhere! I will give you some proof. When I was getting up from my seat and walking along the corridor guess what I stepped on, a whole heap of popcorn!!!!

Overall I had a lot of fun that day. The movie was great and I had fun. This was definitely the  highlight of my school holidays.
